In brief: Comfort only

Treatment is directed at assuring proper hydration, nutrition and rest.
These kids can be quite unhappy for the 3-7 days f this illness and the fever can be unresponsive to meds. As long as they can make pee every 6-8 hours and take in some nutrients, this will pass.

In brief: No treatment

Roseola is a virus.
Once your child develops the characteristic rash, the illness is no longer contagious and will soon be gone. No treatment is needed, or available.
